Odette survivors still staying in makeshift shelters

Families build and stay in temporary shelters where their homes once stood in Barangay Boa in Cagdianao town, Dinagat Islands on Tuesday, almost a month since typhoon Odette hit parts of the country. Survivors of the country’s strongest typhoon last year, which left billions in damaged structure and more than 400 dead, say a series of storm surges brought waves “as high as coconut trees,” leveling most of the houses in the barangay.
